Whether immersing himself in a new computer project or designing new equipment in his workshop, Albert's heart always remained with his wife of 52 years, Nelda, whom he loved deeply. Albert will be forever remembered for his quick wit, straightforwardness, and speaking his mind. Always joking and spreading laughter through his sense of humor his legacy lives on through the memories he created and the love he shared with all who knew him.

Preceded in death by son: Joseph Balderas of Nome, AK (2016), parents: David and Lupe Balderas of Lubbock, TX; sister: Rosa Sabala of Corpus Christi, TX; brother: David Balderas Jr of Lockney, TX.

In his final moments, Albert was embraced and surrounded by the love of his family. Though he may no longer walk beside us, his presence will forever be felt in the laughter, the stories, and the moments shared in his memory.
